How could I miss this? Earlier this year this incredible Hank Williams set was released, 6 CDs with a book:

To sum it up, they blew it, they blew it consistently, they continue to blow it, it is tragic and this pathological problem caused The Beach Boys' greatest music to be so underrated by the general public.

Lately I got into Faron Young's and Porter Wagoner's music respectively. Great stuff and needs to be further listened to by me. Any of you have some tips?

In his new book, “Me and Sister Bobbie: True Tales of the Family Band,” country music legend Willie Nelson talks about his unbreakable bond with his sister Bobbie. As Harry Smith spoke with them for TODAY, they talked about being raised by their grandparents and their lifelong love of music. Regarding rumors of his death, Nelson jokes, “I hope they aren’t true.”

The Ballad Of Billy Joe Shaver And Jerry Jeff Walker, Country Outlaws

The world, by way of Texas, lost two of its most iconoclastic, deservedly mythologized artists this past month – Jerry Jeff Walker, songwriter-flâneur-buckaroo; and Billy Joe Shaver, ornery and God-fearing ghost poet of America's scorched earth.

Today I made a rare brief foray into country music while playing a game at the Hoffman forum.

I once read a book about the wild life and horrific death of Patsy Cline. I remember hearing "Crazy" on the radio in the early '60s, maybe others of hers as well.

This is her take on "Crazy Arms", the song I chose in the Hoffman game:

I'm always wondering if I should start a new thread for these kind of things or if it is enough to post it here. Anyway, another Country Music legend left us this year:


Country music legend Charley Pride died Saturday at age 86, a representative for the singer announced.
Pride died in Dallas of complications from Covid-19, the release said.
